A PARTY PAD

The comfort of guests and the ease of entertaining were two of the highest priorities for the Portugese owners of this home near Lisbon. To tackle the full structural renovation of what began as a very traditional building, the couple enlisted Portuguese powerhouse, SA&V – Sa Aranha & Vasconcelos. Via SA&V, the space was transformed completely, from the structure down to every last detail of the interior design, into a glamorous contemporary home, perfect for the hosting of parties that is part and parcel of an active social life.

AN ARTFUL MIX

Center-stage in this home’s interior is the owners’ incredible collection of contemporary art. These prominent works provide color and contrast against neutral wall colors, floor coverings, and upholstery throughout. A clever mix of contemporary furniture and antique furniture creates a consistently dynamic push and pull; an excellent counterpoint to the large-scale paintings and sculpture. The chosen materials and finishes in the home additionally heighten the overall glamour: warm oak floors, white Thassos marble, metal, glass – and plenty of mirror; the ultimate party pad.
